The classic design comprises of a simple ring sometimes with a rope design and a plate fixed on the door directly for damage prevention. Mythological Door Knockers People with large doors should install large knockers as a small piece on a large door will look out of place. Mythological figures like Roman gods and goddesses are also added beauty on a large door as they are made larger than the normal door knockers. They are bold and give a balance between the size of the knocker and the door. Installation FAQ The best knocker to install is one mounted from the rear and made solid materials like brass or iron.

Although intricate door knockers are popular these days the origins of that knocker may be something far more regal than it simply looking nice on the door. Greeks were a bit picky about unannounced visits to their dwellings. It was considered a breach of etiquette to enter a dwelling without warning. Where Spartans would simply shout their arrival the more sophisticated Athenians preferred to use a door knocker. Doors had replaced flexible hangings to provide better safety and privacy. Upper class Greeks had slaves whose sole purpose was to answer the door. Its a bit like having a butler but one that was chained to the door to prevent them wandering off.

If the replacement door knocker BC dimension is not even close one of the existing holes can be used but the second matching hole must be drilled through the door for the mounting. This leaves the other previous hole to cover up. If puttying and repainting is not an option I have used a third mounting hardware bolt and epoxy it into the unused hole. This gives the appearance on the inside that three bolts are used on this door knocker. This looks natural and is easy to do. The outside portion of the hole is covered by the door knocker but should still be filled with putty to prevent future problems with moisture. With a little luck you will find a matching door knocker.
